As if I needed more incentive to root for NC State (actually, some days I feel like I could use a LOT more), the good folks at Buick have offered to send yours truly and one guest to New Orleans if the Wolfpack makes it to the Final Four. The package includes two flights to New Orleans, a Buick to drive once we get there, a hotel room, and two tickets to the Final Four. It also includes access to Buick activities like media events and parties, so if it happens, we're going to be able to provide the Backing The Pack community both an in-the-stands and behind-the-scenes look at the Final Four, all with that same ... exemplary ... professional ... serious tone you get here on some days.
So if NC State is fortunate enough to get to New Orleans, I and a guest will be there to lend our support and to provide you with the best coverage we can muster, all courtesy of Buick.
Granted it'll take more than good play from Calvin Leslie to help me towards this end. But I figure we can't get there without Leslie continuing to play like he has over the last few weeks, unless Scott Wood wants to hit seven threes every game. Which is cool too.
